I’ve been wanting to make a ONE pallet project. This month’s Power Tool Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. I made an easy potting table out of a wooden pallet I got from a neighbor. This is a fairly easy project with minimal cuts.
Talk of the Town #90 features! Currently we have four hosts, so that gives you 4 great DIY projects and 4 yummy recipes. I know I always say they’re yummy, but why would we feature a recipe that isn’t yummy? 😉 Since I rarely cook, I’m partial to the diy projects. Who doesn’t love a good chalkboard, easy curtain, and fabulous Fall decor?
It took me five days (with the help of my neighbor) to clean out and organize my one car garage wood shop. We didn’t just clean, we built shelving and small skids to keep items off the floor when it rains hard. Lots of tips to help you organize your shop.
I’m sharing a tutorial for an extra large picture frame that I transformed into a cork board memo board. Using my favorite Smoked Glaze really makes this color oh so pretty! I can’t stop using that glaze! Looking for some fun push pin ideas for this cork board.
It’s time for this month’s Thrift Store Decor project, a jewelry organizer to hold necklaces. I made two of these organizers out of old table leaf trim pieces left over from another project. Do you remember the console table? Lots of other great ideas from my friends to inspire you to give thrift store items a new life.
Talk of the Town #89 is live with great DIY and Food features. Fall ideas and a coat rack round out the diy projects. Three yummy desserts and zucchini bread are the featured recipes.
Talk of the Town #88 is ready to inspire you with great diy projects, mostly fall ideas and some yummylicious recipes. Have you noticed that there are two link ups now? One for DIY and another for Food and recipes. I think it makes it so much easier for friends to find what they’re looking for. What are your favorites?
I’m always looking for inspiration for projects, everywhere I go. On my daily walks with Lulu Mae I pass a neighbor’s house and have long admired a wooden slat bench on their porch. I thought for a long time that I would make one out of a couple of chairs. BUT! Then I got those great reclaimed wooden slats from a neighbor . . .
Happy Ber! Do you know what that means? I didn’t until last Friday. It’s basically the beginning of meteorological Fall! That happens on SeptemBER first, with the following months OctoBER, NovemBER, DecemBER!See? I know I’m looking forward to some cooler weather. Speaking of weather, please know that those who have been in the path…
I am helping my friend KariAnne Wood promote her new book–So Close To Amazing by sharing a story with you today about my Maker 13 event that was truly that-so close to amazing. I hope you enjoy getting the scoop on how things went last week. Sometimes it’s difficult to not be disappointed at an outcome that is less than perfect.
I got some free tables with metal legs. They were by a dumpster I passed while running errands. There were a LOT of tables, but I only took eight of them. Now I wish I had taken all of them. The problem was how much room they were taking up in the truck, and where I would store them once I brought them home. I worked that out by dismantling them. If only I had brought more of them home. Here is a trio of diy side tables I made with some of the metal table legs.
Talk of the Town #87 features! Five great DIY projects-something for everyone. In addition there are five yummy recipes to tempt you. Click over to see all the great details.
I actually started this project in 2009! This vertical coat rack is the perfect solution for tight spaces. Use it in the bathroom for towels, by the front door for hats and coats. Hang it low for kids coats and hats.
Easy tutorial showing you how to make pretty pushpins out of yard sale vintage jewelry. Have some of granny’s old jewelry? Get it out of storage and keep it out in the open – give it a new purpose by adding thumb tacks. Of course, fine jewelry should never be repurposed this way, just old costume jewelry.
Features this week include a $100 room makeover, decor fashion rules, Hankie hoops, laundry room makeover, and a furniture makeover. There are also 5 yummy treats to tempt you! Which ones will inspire you?
I picked up this mid century hutch at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago for $15! What a steal! BUT-the glass in one of the doors was broken. I had planned to use decorative metal but the pieces I have aren’t large enough. I’d love to get your ideas of what I should do with the doors now that the glass has been removed.
A FREE old chair is the perfect furniture to repurpose. This chair side table is great for outdoors by my drop cloth hammock or porch swing. I gave it a quick whitewash because I didn’t want it to look too new. I did hit a few glitches and had to call in a favor from a neighbor. I still get stumped and challenged on even some easy projects.
It’s time for August’s Power Tool Challenge. This month’s theme is Use Unconventional Materials. I used fabric! Other projects include pipes and more! You’ll love all the new ideas. I love my new DIY Drop Cloth Hammock!
